      Hermitage and Catherine Palace

      Saint Petersburg Sep 17, 2015 at 5:26 AM

      I and my wife shall be in Saint Petersburg for two days on 22nd and 23rd Sept 2015.(i.e. next Tuesday and Wednesday). I understand we have no choice but to visit Hermitage on Tuesday and Catherine Palace on Wednesday. Please advice whether we should book online and travel or our own or take a conducted tour which appears pretty costly. We don't actually need a Guide as audio guides are sufficient and available in both places.We are unable to judge the crowd pressure in these two paces on these days and definitely do not want to miss this opportunity. Also I have only the 1pm on wards slot available on Tuesday for the Hermitage!


    • student trip (nurses) to St. Petersburg

      Saint Petersburg Sep 20, 2015 at 9:30 AM

      We are a group around 50 Norwegian nursing students who wants to have a trip to St Petersburg next year. We are planning 6 nights there, with 3-4 days of studying. I therefore wonder if anyone know about relevant museums, organisations (within health/socialcare), suggestions for people who can teach us something relevant for nurses or for example about the RussianĀ“s health care system. Please give me contact information if you have or a link.

      3. Kremlin Armoury
      4. Diamond Fund
      5. Bell Tower
      6. Alexandria Garden
      7. State Historical Museum

      Can all be covered in one day?. Any suggestions since it appears to be a pretty large area. Also tips on purchase of entry tickets.It shall be a weekend.

      A Pakistani Tourist

      Kaliningrad Sep 30, 2015 at 3:21 AM

      Hi all
      Hope you having good time
      I'm planning to visit Kaliningrad this November (2015) as Its the only time off for me from my office for a week. one of my colleagues adores kaliningrad a lot compelled me to visit. but I have few questions anyone here would answer?
      1) I'm an asian/Pakistani Brown skin guy, and honestly I ve been to many places around the world and found it bit weird to be in such place where people around you all are from a total different background stares you that annoy you and you do not enjoy your days off. so how's the local behavior towards brown skininned, single tourist on his own? (I'm really sorry if that sound offensive)
      I'm not a beach/club/pub/party kinda guy, rather trekking, landscapes, mountains, hiking alone, and discovering borders. So would it be easy to walk/trek alone in forests, mountains, fields, and wandering around the border area? having in mind that there are restricted areas for tourists. But I'd really love to visit and capture some snaps with the tri-point (lithuania-poland-and russia border.
      Thank you all in advance

    • Ideal duration for doing justice to Novgorod , 1 day or 2 days?

      by shekhar.ghate Online Now May 23, 2014 at 10:55 AM

      Planning to visit Novgorod from St Pet by car in Mid June 2014, reaching at @ 11.30 am. On way to Moscow. One option is to take same day night train at 9.15 pm to Moscow.
      Other option is to take next day same train at night. Then we get next day whole day. We are not short of time.
      Is one day of 6/7 hrs adequate? or the place offers many things so that 2 days are meaningfully spent.

      Military stuff to see in Novgorod or nearby places?

      by Drugness Online Now Dec 29, 2012 at 11:24 AM

      Hello all
      Planning my first ever trip to Novgorod and am curious about how many monuments, museums and memorials to the Great Patriotic War, the Siege of Leningrad, Afghanistan etc that I may find there?
      If anyone could recommend unusual stuff like this, i'd love to hear about it.
      Thank you all!
      I'm going to be putting a similar post in the St P and Moscow sections so it might appear to be a trible post.
      Cheers guys!

      Best way to travel to Velikiy Norvgorod from St Petersburg and then vice versa

      by Drugness Online Now Dec 12, 2012 at 5:03 AM

      Hello all
      From the online research I have done, I take it there is no train line running between these 2 cities? :)
      I'm planning to spend 2 nights here. Is that enough? It's hardly too much? :)
      If you could advise the best transport routes between here and St P, I would be most grateful
      Thank you all

      I am planning on bringing a group to Novgorod in late November and I was wondering which of these two restaurants would be better for dinner: Hol'mgard or Detinets? I prefer an old charming restaurant that would impress my group, but I am open to your opinion. Any help is appreciated!
